Faceless Story Detail
At the Surge Consortium, Prof. Surge himself introduces the new non-polluting battery. Ace, a guest there, hears a rumbling noise and investigates the newest room with one of the security guards. Both receive a surprise attack from a woman with no face. Ace tries his best to stop her, but she proves to be too much for him. Hours later, Surge is upset about the theft of silicon rods but can't understand the reasoning. Ace learns from Vega about Faceless, the most clever thief in the world. She's been hired by Black Jack to stop Sonny Boy, who himself has incriminating evidence which could put Black Jack behind bars. Faceless starts having fun much to the dismay of Ace, who finds the Magic Express partially trashed along with one of her riddles; Vega, who is caught sleeping on the job by Capt. Friedrichs via the newspaper; and Black Jack, who wants her to stick to the job at hand. Ace and Cosmo decipher the riddle and get set for a midnight meeting on the docks. Faceless steals a titanium tube from a factory just as she confronts Ace. Things get worse for him when Spade and Diamond show up, and he barely gets away. While Vega is forced off the Faceless case to concentrate on Sonny Boy's new bunker, Ace and Cosmo learn the deadly potential of combining the silicon rod and titanium tube: It can penetrate any safe in the world but more importantly cause everyone within 500 meters to suffer a heart attack! Ace makes the connection between the bomb, Faceless, and Sonny Boy's bunker, so he asks Vega to announce a riddle for her to stall for time. She solves it but too late, for she and Ace duke it out for a third time.
